Welcome to OrlyAirport.co.uk, the definitive guide to France’s second busiest airport.

Located 11 miles south of Paris, overlapping the communes (administrative districts similar to parishes) of Villeneuve-le-Roi and Orly, Paris-Orly Airport covers almost six square miles, making it, in terms of area, larger than Heathrow.

While many international flights have shifted to Charles de Gaulle Airport, 40 kilometres away and one of the largest airports in the world, Orly remains the busiest airport for domestic traffic in France. It is the second busiest French airport overall, behind CDG, handling more than 25 million passengers a year.
